Deco Murals Of Bremerton, Washington

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Mount Vernon RV Resort in Bow, Washington. I’ll depart here August 9th. I’ve been here a number of times in past years.

 

I’ll be hanging out in this general area until about the beginning of October, taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

 

(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m a number of blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode in about a month.)

 

Today’s subject…

I love being a photographer because I get to see a lot of things that most people miss during their daily walk of life. Looking at life through a little square hole for more than 40 years, zeros you into things held within the big picture.

Today’s subject is a great example…as a matter of fact…I almost missed them.

The below photo shows what the wall they are affixed upon is hiding…the Eighth Street Electrical Sub-Station…

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

Notice the wall on the very far right. On the street side of that wall are…

In need of a gentle and loving cleaning….

I was able to clean them up in Picasa to some degree…

Difficult to do without ruining the effect of the mural….

Anyways, like I said earlier….

I truly hope some responsible person in Bremerton will see this posting…

As a matter of fact…right after this blog is posted, I’m going to email it to City Hall with the hope that they receive the much-needed attention. I’ll let you know if I receive any positive feedback from City Hall.

Yesterday was mostly sunny and 73 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 75 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

  1. The locals probably don’t even see the murals as they pass by because they have become accustomed to the way they look, and they change so little on a short-term basis. But these treasures need to be preserved. I hope you are successful in getting the local authorities interested in preserving these bits of history.

    Virtual hugs,

      Thanks for your comment. I email a copy of the blog posting to the mayor of Bremerton. It will be interesting to see if I hear back from her.
